The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is to hold a music and literature festival
from June to October to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of the Lady of the Lake poem by Walter Scott.
Entitled ScottsLand, Celebrate the Language of the Landscape, the festivities will include a range of cultural and literary events that will be held in the Trossachs.
The national park authority has issued an appeal for writers, artists, musicians and those involved in new media to get involved.
Such a festival
might make it a good time for those who like to put on their walking gear
to head for the national park, where they can combine the enjoyment of the scenery in the Trossachs with the fun of the festival
Those hoping to enjoy a festival
dedicated more to walking will also get the chance to experience these over the course of 2010.
Crieff and Strathearn's Drovers' Tryst Walking Festival
and the Cowal Walking and Arts Festival
will both take place in October.
